EPIC video for students

EPIC video for business

EPIC (Exploring Possible Industries & Careers) DAY is a large-scale, 2-part, career exploration event that features a variety of career pathways for up to 720 high school students to explore.

For half the day, students are introduced to these pathways in a meaningful and experiential manner by connecting directly with business and industry representatives and getting a glimpse of what it might be like to work in various fields. Ideally, students will get to explore one occupation from each of the following industries: Agriculture/Environment, Health, STEM, Trades, plus one wildcard occupation that does not fall within these 4 sectors. Local industry professionals showcase their businesses and connect with their future workforce… your students!

During the other half of the day, students tour a local business, discovering firsthand how different occupations contribute to producing quality produces and services.

Students can expect to:

  • Be registered in cohort groups of 6 students.
  • Meet 5 hosts working in a variety of industries – students can start their own network of contacts.
  • Participate in interactive displays – rather than just talking to hosts, students will experience a small part of the job and gain a greater insight into what the occupation involves.
  • Learn what it takes to work in those specific occupations, including the highlights/low-lights of the job.
  • Tour a local business, discovering how many different occupations contribute to that business’ day-to-day operations.
